John’s long tenure in Atlanta Area Scouting and his personal knowledge of so many Scouters at the Council, District and Unit level uniquely qualify him to lead the networking and make the connections that will bring Silver Comet Scouting to more of our area Youth through the formation of New Scouting Units.

John will be the point of contact for all questions, recommendations, suggestions and leads on the formation and establishment of new Scout Units for all of our Program areas.

If you know of any organization that you think might Charter a Cub Pack, Troop, Crew, Team, Ship or Post, contact John Lyon at newunit@silvercometdistrictbsa.org
